A Cube!

A Cube!

Postby SPARTAN-001 » March 17th, 2009, 8:31 am

This is just something that I was messing around with. It's kinda abstract, but I was wondering which one you thought looked better.

You know, it was that sort of thing I was going to apply to the ship for the community project. I wasn't going to do it quite as much as you have done there, but the same idea applies. I think that looks really good, I wish I had time to do it to the ship.

I think I the bottom one looks better, I looks more 'real' to me.

I like the bottom one too like Irascible says it's more real. How did you get that texture, disp mapping?

@ Nismo- I didn't use a texture actually. I used the fractal subdivide, but I realized almost immediately after that a texture would have been far less strenuous on my poor computer. :P

@ Sazex- Possibly. If I have enough time I might do a tutorial, but it's not actually that tricky to do, just time consuming to tweak and render.

@ IrascibleOne- What ship might this be? Could I possibly help?

@ All- Thanks for your comments. Just so you know, this mesh was made only with extruding and subdividing from a cube. The render was done with Approximate Ambient Occlusion (not raytraced) and soft shadows from a regular lamp. The material is just a regular gray w/ a Ray Mirror effect @ .5 and some specularity and reflection tweaks. The "texture" is just a multi fractal subdivide w/ a factor of 50. Render time was approximately 22 minutes on a 2.4 GHz P4 HT (It's slow, but it's the only type of computer we have @ my school.) The whole thing took me maybe 10 minutes to make, the long part was rendering.

Once again, thanks for the comments, and I'll try to give everyone a tutorial soon.

You can help, the ship is for the community project. So if you want more information on that, you can go into that section. At the moment though, the ship is getting textured but if you believe that you can make model or texture something better than what we already have, please do so. I'm sure the others won't mind. Basically, just jump in and say you are going to do something. I haven't really been telling any one person what to do, so it's borderline free for all.

I like them both. The bottom one does look more real.
